Get (Not Too) Crazy With Mascara Colors

Like me, I am guessing many of you don’t stray too far from brown or black mascara on a daily basis. Well, I’m the first to admit that I’m trés boring in the mascara department, but why not shake things up a bit? If you haven’t heard, colored mascaras can work to enhance specific eye colors, and I promise they aren’t tacky and neon. (If you know me at all by now, you know I don’t stray into crazy trend territory.) Plum, navy, forest green…these colors can make your eye color pop without looking too garish or over-the-top. Surprisingly subtle, actually.

Here are some lovely mascara options for each eye color.

    Get back to the basics. What's the complimentary color for green? Purple. Choosing mascaras in the plum and aubergine range will make green eyes pop. Give it a try: Benefit BADgal mascara in Plum
  • Brown Eyes 2 of 4
    Brown Eyes
    I know I'm going against the purpose of this post, but super black mascara is hard to beat for dark-eyed ladies since it adds amazing definition. However, navy looks amazing on brown eyes! (I speak from experience, as I've been trying out navy for my brown peepers lately and love it.) Give it a try: DiorShow Iconic Mascara in Navy
  • Blue Eyes 3 of 4

    Although complimentary colors usually are the way to go, a great shade of royal blue defies the rule. However, don't discount copper or bronze. These colors look gorgeous on blue eyes. Sparkle city! Give it a try: L'Oreal Double Extend Mascara in Black Copper
  • Hazel Eyes 4 of 4
    Hazel Eyes
    A warm chocolate brown is great for making hazel eyes look lush, but why not try a forest green to help spotlight the green flecks in hazel eyes? Give it a try: Blinc Mascara in Dark Green
